Coming across fresh faces in Nobatoby! Releasing a music video recently and bringing summer energy back into our lives. Using a song off their debut EP BRAIN STORM, the Chicago artists create a visual water park experience, creating a nostalgic vibe with the combination of music. Taking advantage of the empty amusement rides in NYC due to COVID circumstances. Adding to the diversity of Chicago music, alternative indie rock music fans would enjoy this, with a similar sound to Smashing Pumpkins and the likes, GO DOWN it is already on replay here!
With a claim to fame, the UK alternative rock band Blue Kubricks shout at the top of their lungs what they know to be true, “I’m Famous,” in their new single HEROIN. More so addicted to the feeling of the Rock n’ Roll lifestyle, the title purely a metaphor. As the the brothers from the UK would put the iconic phrase in reverse, Rock N Rock, Sex & Drugs; a more proper order. “You love me, I love me too. Oh, yea I do, Cause I’m Famous,” Blue Kubricks add to the chorus, embracing their self made situation. Similar in sound to Incubus or Smashing Pumpkins, they capture the energy of Rock n Roll music perfectly.
Leader of the pack mentality Jean Deaux keeps a team, “a manaj, and she calls them all Nicki”. Sitting at the edge of a desk in flashy shades, acrylic nails, draped in diamonds directing people working back and forth for her is the perfect image. I would feel bad for who ever is lacking on the other end of that line in this Work 4 Me music video. It is clear she does not need you, “Think twice before you ask a verse from me” but you can work for her, she has got moves to make.
Working on her own writing and adding filmography to her resume she directed the video herself with Stripmall, really working the brand she presents. The video itself is apart of a bigger EP project containing many of the familiar crew from Pivot, Zero Fatigue and independent artists like Phoelix,THEMpeople and AMAC. Packed with wavy & heavy beats and dramatic dialogue in between songs KRASH shows a real sign of maturity in her music and presentation. A real artists flourishing and making moves is rare to see yet Chicago is bustling with artists like Jean Deaux putting in a good name for her city and her work ethic.
Chicago artist Ashley “ACstyle” Coleman is no rookie when it comes to the music industry. Not only does she write, she’s a rapper and singer. Her music genres consist of Rap, Hip-Hop, Pop, Techno, Rock and many more. When she’s not doing homework, preparing for a show, working on her own business (web designer/ event planner/ party host) or recording, from Evanston to the city of Chicago, catch her in the streets painting the town red (Turn up).
AC has opened many shows on the same stage as Lil Wayne, performed with Trey Songz, met Nicki Minaj, Twista, Elle Varner, Rae Sremmurd and many more famous musicians. She also released a single with another Chicago artist Shawanna called “Ridin” which reached highly in the charts.
In the first week of this New year, AC is rolling with opportunities already. She released her video “Keep it on the Low” on New Years Day, which has already over 1,000 views.
“My single is really about a love story of how two people meet in a party or at the club, they eventually fall in love, but want to keep their relationship on the low to keep people out of their business to prevent problems”.
The XXL Magazine edition she is featured in will be released in February, She will be on a college tour this spring with Christina Milian and Chanel West Coast, getting ready to drop a song with Drake “Situationship” and graduating from college this year.

(Left to Right) Michael “Mike D” Diamond, Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz and Adam “MCA” Yauch formed this iconic Hip-Hop/Punk Rock group in 1981 at Yauch’s 17th birthday party. Ad-Rock was actually added to the group later on in 1983 replacing an old member of the group. New York is their home, New York is the city where it all started for these 3 guys.
When their first EP, Cooky Puss, was released it quickly became a hit in New York underground dance clubs and night clubs upon its delivery. It was first their first piece of work that fused together the underground rap phenomenon and the use of samples of prank calls.
Due to their success with Cooky Puss they hired a college student as their DJ (Rick Rubin) and started performing at venues all over the New York scene. Rubin produced their next records under Def Jam and Capitol Records, the rest was history in the making as they continued to record and tour around the world. Their success led to 3 Grammy awards, MTV video music awards, and also features in films. Not only did they inspire the hip-hop community with their music they also were activist by added their voice to the growing protest against the U.S. war on Iraq in 2003.
In April 2012, the Beastie Boys were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The following month, MCA died of cancer at the age of 47. In Brooklyn there is a children’s playground renamed for Adam Yauch in his memory. In June 2014, Mike D stated that the Beastie Boys would not continue their careers as a group, as a promise to Adam Yauch. Look out for their autobiography that has been postponed for a 2017 release. Purchase memorabilia on their social media pages below and continue to “Fight…. for your right…to partyyyy!” Rest in peace MCA.
